    Summary

    Having survived the Reaper War, the crew of the Normandy fight to get back home in the memory of what they believe to be their fallen commander. In her absence, a new chain of command must be decided, which places the impossible burden upon the last person who would ever want it. Those closest to Commander Shepard are forced to do their best to keep up morale while simultaneously struggling with their own doubts and hopelessness. Will grit and hope be enough to bring them home?

    Meanwhile, back in the Sol System, Commander Aziza Shepard's fight isn't over. First she must overcome the devastating injuries that she suffered, then fight to rebuild the galaxy that she fought so hard to save, all the while holding on to the desperate hope that the crew she loves is out there somewhere. But as weeks and months turn to years, the galaxy begins to move on. Will she move on along with it? Or will hope win out over "ruthless calculus"?

    Summary

    Humans are exceptionally skilled at adapting, fast and violently, when needed. Turians are fiercely dedicated and proud of the militant prowess that marks their species across the galaxy. Both are willing to burn the ground they stand on to win a different type of war.

    In the twelve years that followed human’s rough introduction to the galactic community beyond the Charon relay, little changed the general distaste for homo sapiens ‘ingenuity’ amongst council species. Sparked by the rapid rise of human political power, species extremism polarizes Citadel space. Forced to work together, Shepard and Garrus are tasked with investigating a string of terrorist attacks that threaten to destabilize galactic peace. What starts as a collection of awkward firsts, develops into a game of broken rules and self-deception. For Shepard and Garrus, facing the truth about themselves and each other just might be the hardest feat.

    Set in an alternate universe.

    Summary

    Shepard has faced countless enemies; she even defeated the collectors, along with her trusted team. When she goes on a solo mission to Aratoht to spring an Alliance operative from prison and investigate claims of intel on the impending reaper invasion, everything goes wrong. An entire system is wiped out because of her actions. She's prepared to face the consequences, but she isn't prepared for the consequences of cutting ties with Cerberus. Other unexpected consequences are coming her way, too...

    Lieutenant James Vega has to live with his actions on Fehl Prime. An entire colony died because he chose the intel over the people. He'd prefer to drink his leave away in a bar and return to duty as dulled to emotion as possible, but Anderson has other ideas. He finds himself recruited for a surprising assignment; personal security for his hero. She's been mistreated, attacked, betrayed and nearly killed. It's James' job to ensure that no further harm comes to her. He'll take his duty more seriously than anyone could expect.

    Summary

    Commander Shepard is dead. In his place, a man wakes up to a galaxy that's moved on without him. Forced to ally with the monstrous organisation Cerberus, the newley rekindled Shepard discovers he's a shadow of the hero he used to be.

    Saddled with a suicide mission to stop the extinction of mankind, the commander is trapped between stopping a new and deadly enemy, and trying to piece himself back together.

    Facing his most dangerous mission yet, Shepard quickly discovers that without something deeper than duty to his mission, he won't be coming back at all.

    A Shepard/Tali novelisation of Mass Effect 2, with slight changes to the canon. This story will follow a man scarred by death. There will be fluff and fun to be had with the commander and his close friends, but ultimately this will be a tale of overcoming loss and grief.

    Thanks in advance to all my readers. I hope you enjoy!

    Summary

    Ten years have passed since the war. With the last mass relay built, some of the original Normandy crew gather for its activation. But something goes horribly awry, and an explosion opens a rift. The Normandy is sucked into an Einstein-Rosen bridge, and Shepard wakes up later to a silent CIC. The crew is missing, and just outside the cockpit window, a mass relay is in view. The only problem is that it looks similar to the relays destroyed during the war.

    Sucked through space and time into another universe three years before the Reaper Invasion. What will Shepard change? How will it change her?

    Summary

    MORE flashbacks, interstitial scenes, and backdoor dealings. An AU retelling of ME3 focusing on characters and worlds, big and small.

    Nerdy, worldbuilding-heavy, flashback-heavy, intended to elaborate upon the canon through the POV of many different characters. Shipping is very minor, but when and if it happens it will be Joker/EDI, Shepard/Tali, Liara/Javik, and Gabby/Ken (in descending order of importance).

    Will be more serial and more AU than its predecessor, but it should still be the case that most chapters should stand alone.
